My Staycation Trip to Disney World & Stay at The Grand Floridian Hotel

Hey there!

Sorry for the lack of posts around here lately, but I’ve been on vacation.

Well it was more like a staycation since we don’t live very far away, but it was still a nice relaxing trip.

My husband and I enjoy trying out the different Disney hotels so this year we decided to stay at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for Labor Day and it was a lot of fun.

One of the great things about staying at the Grand Floridian hotel is the fact that the Monorail travels to the hotel so you can just hop on it and head straight to the Magic Kingdom.

Cool huh?

It was nice to be able to pop into the park for an hour here and there and then turn around and head right back over to the hotel to rest/shop/eat/swim/etc.

Oh and can we talk about the Interior of the hotel?

The hotel has a Victorian meets modern sophistication vibe that I just loved.

Pretty right?

Besides hanging out in the lobby listening to the live orchestra play ragtime, jazz and popular Disney tunes, checking out the Spa and hanging out in the pool there was also lots of shopping inside the hotel to take advantage of.

Like The Basin White store and another store which had a Guerlain counter inside.

It was a very dangerous situation for me to be in, but I ended up only picking up a few things so I was proud of myself šŸ™‚

Back in the room….

I hope I didn’t bore you with all of the pictures, I just wanted to share with you what I’ve been up to for the past 10 days or so.

Please let me know what you think of the more lifestyle type posts as well as Disney ones.

I’d love to hear what you want to see more of whether that’s reviews, art, lifestyle posts, etc.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and be sure to check back soon for some new posts.

Best,

Leigh
